I posted this on Facebook immediately after getting the press release this morning, but I wanted to post it here on the main NorthDecoder.com website, because it's important and because I want those of you who aren't on the Facebook to see it and comment, if you want.

FARGO, ND- Today, Senator Heidi Heitkamp released the following statement regarding her position on marriage equality:

“In speaking with North Dakotans from every corner of our great state, and much personal reflection, I have concluded the federal government should no longer discriminate against people who want to make lifelong, loving commitments to each other or interfere in personal, private, and intimate relationships.  I view the ability of anyone to marry as a logical extension of this belief. The makeup of families is changing, but the importance of family is enduring.”


If you contacted the senator's office and asked her to support marriage equality, this is yours.  

If you didn't, call your senator and thank her for doing the right thing.

Wonder if she would have won the election had she came out if favor before it. Not saying anything against her opinion, just curious if it would have affected the election

She's gone Washington. Watch her fold like a house of cards when the gun bans come up in congress. Heidi fights for the Washington way.

"She's gone Washington." - Translation: She doesn't hate gay people the way "Voter" does!
